Cards That Care blog hop--GIVEAWAY

Hello, friends:}


I am so excited to participate in the Cards That Care blog hop this year!!!! I love that Vera and Jennifer have decided to collect cards again this year--these cards will be donated to the elderly in nursing homes. If you came from Sweet Stamp Shop's blog, you are in the right place-- if you would like to start from the beginning of the hop, please click HERE.


I created a holiday card using several Sweet Stamp Shop images!! I used the Tree Traditions, Scootin' By, and Old School Rock sets for my card. I LOVE this simple design! I love mixing and matching sets too--the "rockin'" was a combination from Scootin' By and Old School Rock. The "Ha", "ve", and "a" were from Scootin' By--all different stamps masked and pieced together. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by all the blogs on this hop! You won't want to miss out on the amazing creations...or on the prizes!!! Yes--there are some GIVEAWAYS!! 


Details: The following companies have donated prizes: : Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, Sweet Stamps Shop, Avocado ArtsHero Arts, onlinecardclasses.com, and I Love It AllWinners will be randomly picked from comments left on participants blog. The more blogs you leave comments on-- the better your chances. :) 

-People have the whole weekend to leave comments (till Sunday, 11/6/11 midnight CST).


If you would like to participate and donate some cards--here are some important details!!
